Duron Harmon said his goodbyes to two long-tenured New England Patriots players Tuesday night.
In an Instagram post, Harmon offered well-wishes to wide receiver Danny Amendola, who reportedly agreed to a two-year, $ 12 million contract with the Miami Dolphins earlier in the day, and cornerback Malcolm Butler, who reportedly came to terms on a five-year, $ 61 million deal with the Tennessee Titans.
“Mannnn I’m gonna miss y’all boys!” the Patriots safety wrote. “But at the end of the day I’m happy for both of you. You guys both deserve everything you got and I’m just happy that I got to share the field with two of the baddest cats in the league.
Harmon concluded his note with an apology to Amendola for a play many Patriots fans might have forgotten about.
During a 2015 game against the New York Giants, Amendola picked up two massive blocks on a punt return and had nothing but green turf between him and the end zone when Harmon inadvertently tripped him up. Instead of scoring a touchdown, the wideout fell to the ground at the 7-yard line and was swarmed by Giants defenders.
“Sorry again DA for trippen you and takin away ya td,” Harmon wrote.
Amendola and Butler are expected to officially sign their contracts once free agency opens at 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday. Running back Dion Lewis also reportedly agreed to a four-year contract with the Titans worth up to $ 23 million.
